12:00 PM Presentation
Description: The practice of short-term/vacation rental of residential property has recently exploded in popularity and appears to be here to stay.  This program will discuss the challenges associated with defining and regulating the various types of short-term/vacation rentals, including: a review of St. Louis County and Maplewood municipal regulations of short-term rentals, efforts by the Missouri legislature to limit municipal regulations, and tips for drafting legislation that will comply with proposed state law.  Cindy Parnell and Anthony Traxler will focus on:

  1.  Introduction to short term rentals – different types of short-term rentals, what types of zoning/occupancy/building/business license regulations apply
  2. Maplewood’s ordinance and experiences with short-term rentals
  3. The state legislature bill introduced last term – potential impacts on ability to impose restrictions if is reintroduced, what restrictions would/would not pass muster
